Presented by Liz White, publisher of The Record-Journal, Meriden, Connecticut

This webinar is designed for publishers, sales leaders and senior executives.

Government funds are available to assist local businesses and grow revenue.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury announced the launch of the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds, established by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, to provide $350 billion in emergency funding for eligible state, local, territorial and Tribal governments.

And, chances are, your market is eligible to take advantage of these funds. Local governments have substantial flexibility to meet their market’s needs, including providing support for small businesses and nonprofits.

Join us for a special America’s Newspapers webinar to learn how The Record-Journal in Meriden, Connecticut, developed a Business Boost Marketing Grant Program to help local governments put these funds into action, stimulate local business and provide advertising revenue through a robust match program. Record-Journal Publisher Liz White will present an overview of the program and show you how your market can develop a match program to assist local businesses and take advantage of this opportunity.
